  1. It’s weird that the bullet wasn’t distorted and still had a point to spin on. Another magic bullet?

    …nah, not here, thats more of a WorldStar thing…

  3. Poor firearm safety.
    No one in their right mind or with half a brain would fire a bullet at a hard surface.

    Now you tell me! I’ve been shooting steel plate matches for over thirty years. Why didn’t somebody warn me? Heh.

  5. Ordinarily the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection.
    Is this not true in ballistics?

    I am steeped in ignorance and am asking for an answer.

    Not always, depends on various factors involved than there are with a beam of light or a billiard ball. In this case there was penetration of the ice the same way a bullet digs in when it hits dirt or wood. For the larger part, soft bullets or shot tend to skate along the surface more than reflect off of it (something very useful to know if you’re using a shotgun).

  7. My uncle used to chase tin cans across the frozen river using his tommy gun.
    That was many years ago…

  8. The bullet seems to have followed its path backwards, as if doing a nearly 180 degree shift off a non-perpendicular (to its trajectory) surface. Seems highly unlikely.

    I don’t own a 9 but I may have to get one to try this next winter.

  9. Brian Williams…BS! It was invented by Inspector Luger from the Barney Miller show, they even put his name on the bullets! 🙂
